  1. Qat

    Qat is the principal god in the oral mythology of the Banks Islands, a small archipelago of northern Vanuatu, Melanesia. Although he was never worshipped as a deity properly speaking, the folklore of these once animist populations traditionally referred, and still does, to Qat as the spirit to whom we humans owe several elements of our culture: the world itself; Night; Death; women; marriage rules and incest prohibition; as well as the song language in use throughout the area. In modern times, Qat is sometimes assimilated to the Christian God.
